Quad Blogging begins this week! Welcome students from Nespelem School, Humphry-Davy School, and Brigantine Middle School! Please join our conversations!
Students, what defines a good book for you?
Do you look for characters you can connect with and feel passionate about?
Do you need action and a good storyline to keep you reading?
What about setting? Do you like to feel you are right alongside your characters based on the rich descriptions made by the author?
Do you want to learn something?
Independent reading has begun in earnest this week, and you all should be a good way into the beginning of your books. Without giving anything major away (remember, you want to get others excited about possibly wanting to read your book), what do you like about the book so far that you are reading? (Include some thoughts from the questions above.)
Please give the title of your book and author. Remember to skip spaces between paragraphs, and please leave a comment for at least one classmate.
For me, I measure a good book by the sheer fact I cannot put it down, and all I want to do is read…….even while I am preparing dinner (one time that lead to disastrous results!) or driving in the car…..stopping at red lights. I want to feel something about the characters, and I don’t want to be able to see anything coming! Even if it means throwing a book across the room because I was so upset at something that happened to a character…..yes, I did that. The fact that the author makes me feel a certain way is my definition of a good book.
